Yahoo! buys inbox management tool Xobni for $30 million

Yahoo! has continued its streak of acquisitions, picking up email inbox management software Xobni for $US30 million.

“Did you ever meet someone who truly ‘gets’ you? That’s how we feel about Yahoo!,” Xobni wrote in a company blog post.

“Of course, soon you’ll be able to use Yahoo! products with Xobni goodness baked right in.”

The purchase comes just a few days after Yahoo! purchased mobile video app Qwiki for $US50 million, and just weeks after it bought blogging platform Tumblr for $US1.1 billion.

Xobni works as a type of inbox management tool, allowing users to index everything in an email system and then search for individual emails, contacts, or for people who aren’t even in your own address book.
